Greenlade Quirk Ogee and Bevel Molding Plane.
This is a nice medium sized version of the most common molding profile out there. This example is in good working order with a few issues tha thsouldn't affect use. The plane was made by Greenlsade in Bristol. It has a York pitch blade that's a bit short from use, but still in nice shape with no pitting at all on the back. The boxing is a bit worn but straight and complete. The plane has dings and scratches as you'd expect. the wedge has a sheared finial that was nicely repaired. It's still a good, usable example of this versatile profile.

Big Mathieson REverse Ogee and Fillet Molding Plane.
This is a curvy furniture scale molding plane made by Mathieson in The profile is about 1 1/4in wide by 5/8in deep. The plane has seen a lot of use and has the dings and scratches that go along with that. However, the blade has been well-kept and is lapped and decently sharp. The mouth is stil lquite tight. The blade is bedded at York pitch. It has a massive fence so it should be really easy to keep at the right spring angle in use which is important for a profile this wide. It' s a shapely big molder in very good working condition.

Massive Ovolo and Cove Molding Plane by Moore, Baltimore.
This plane cuts a 1in wide by 3/4in deep ovolo and cove profile. It's seen a good amount of use and the blade is still quite sharp and ground properly. A small mahogany fence was attached to give a larger bearing surface to the original. The profile may have been modified from the original based on the somewhat lost strip of boxing in the sole. Still, it's a nice large profile plane bearing the EEL mark on the heel for those of you interested.

Matched Pair of Nelson 5/8in Flat Ovolo Molding Planes.
This is an excellent pair of sash ovolo planes made by Nelson in London in the early-mid 1800s. The planes have a slightly different patina but the owners' marks and makers' mark match exactly. One is a no. 1, the other no. 2. Both are in very good working order. Both have cabinet pitch blades. The blades have light scattered pitting. Both mouths are tight and both planes show minimal wear though, again, the no. 1 is slightly darker than the no. 2. They make a nice matched pair of perfect user planes with useful smaller profiles.

Extra-Steep Quirk Ovolo and Bead.
This is an early British molding plane, possibly dating to the 18th century. I cannot make out a maker's mark at the toe, though it was clearly made by a highly skilled professional planemaker. t has the appearance of a plane from the 1700s, or perhaps the very early 1800s. It's clearly British and has had at least three owners, two of whom were of the surname Hodgins. The plane cuts an elaborate quirk ovolo and bead measuring 1 1/4in wide by 1in deep. The blade is in remarkably good condition considering the age. It is fairly clean with a few minor spots of pitting well away from the bevel. The entire bead is boxed. The quirk boxing has a few cracks but it is straight and stable. It's a graphic early molder which would make a nice addition to a collection or working kit.

Tiny 3/8in Quirk Ogee and Bevel Molding Plane.
This plane has a faint maker's mark at the toe that I believe reads "W. Taylor". It is a mark I cannot find in either Goodman or AWP-IV, though I do believe it is of British make, likely in the mid 1800s. The plane cuts a small 3/8in deep by 1/2in wide quirk ogee and bevel profile. It's a profile normally used in much larger scale in casings and other furniture scale moldings. This one is in excellent condition with little wear and no damage to the body or wear. The boxing is perfect. The cabinet pitch blade is clean and quite sharp. The mouth is still quite tight. It should sharpen up easily and become a useful little molder with a very nice profile.

Interesting 18th Century Cove Molding Plane by Hayes, Liverpool.
This is a large cove molder measuring about 3/4in square. The plane was made by William Hayes who worked in Liverpool ca. 1790-1805. It certainly has all of the features of a plane from this era including the very deep, flat chamfers on the handhold, and deep gouge cuts at the transition points. The blade is bedded at an extreme angle of 65 degrees. the blade is in great condition considering its 200+ years of age. It has no pitting and the blade matches the sole well. It's a nice example of a very early British plane.

Scarce Smaller 5/8in Torus Bead by Watkins.
This is a very good example of a hard to find smaller size torus bead. It was made by Watkins in Bradford in the mid-late 1800s. It is in very good condition overall with minimal wear, perfect boxing, and a decent clean blade with stcattered pitting. It's a good, usable plane in an ideal size for base and casing moldings, among other uses.

Marples Patented Boxwood Shave.
This shave has seen a lot of use but it's interesting and still quite usable. The shave has a "registered" blade retention system consisting of two brass screws that hold the tangs in place. Both the screws and either side of the body next to each screw is marked "Registered 357566". The shave has a very short "sole" in front of the blade and features a distinct radius so I believe it was intended to work inside curves. The blade is short but usable, and has no pitting at all.

Massive PS&W 16in Drawknife.
This is the largest drawknife I've ever come across- it's a tool I've been happy to have in my collection for a number of years but now it's time to find it a new home. The drawknife was made by Peck, Stowe, and Wilcox in Southington, CT. It bears their No. 1 Extra mark on the front of the blade. It has handles that look like apple wood to me. The blade is 16in wide as measured and marked on the tang. This is the largest production model PS&W made, and the only surviving example I can recall seeing. The blade is in fantastic condition. It has no pitting at all and very little discoloration. IT's been used very lightly and retains almost all of its original length. The handles are in excellent condition without damage. It's a fully usable drawknife, and a nice addition to a collection of top quality tools.

Interesting Marples Rabbeting and Fillister Router.
This is a very unusual double rabbeting spokeshave capable of working fro either the right or left as either a sash fillister or a rabbeting fillister. As described in the period catalogs this tool was intended for use as a sash tool- when combined with a sash router it could create the rabbet for the glass but was also useful as a fillister router as well. It has its original Marples rion and almost all original black japanning. There is a very small chip out of the sole just in back of the blade. The blade is in excellent condition and both fences move and fix easily. It's a good, usable example of this scarce tool.

Excellent Goodell-Pratt Two-Speed Breast Drill.
This is a heavy-duty breast drill made by G-P in Greenfield, MA ca 1900. It has a three jaw chuck capable of holding large round shank bits up to 1/2in diameter. It has two speeds, 1:1 and 3:1 selected by turning a knurled nut on the main gear. This is the same selecting switch used on the no. 5 and 5 1/2 hand drills. It works well, but comes with the same caveat that it needs a little finagling to get it to shift gears but once set it stays put... The drill has almost all original finish throughout and retains most of the original decal on the main gear. It's in excellent working order and runs smoothly with no slop in the main gear or the ball bearing spindle.

Indestructible 10in Brace made for Craftsman.
This is one of my favorite brace models- it's a heavy-duty brace with a ball bearing head and two-jaw chuck with an aluminum handle, all of which adds up to a bullet-proof brace capable of very hard work at an affordable price. It was made for Craftsman, possibly by Millers FAlls. . This is a good working example with a good chuck and smooth ratchet.

Interesting Goodell Patent 10in Brace.
the shell of this brace is marked "Fulton Special US PAtent 488691". That patent corresponds to A. Goodell's 12/27/1892 patent ratchet chuck. This patent was manufactured by Goodell Pratt but is also seen on these Fulton Special braces which were apparently made for the Fulton Tool Co. This example is in very good working order. It appears to have a rosewood head and handle, both in very good condition- tight and accurate. The handle has adjustable stops to, presumably, take up slop should it develop.. The ratchet function is selected by turning a U shaped piece on the ratchet case. The jaws are the holdall type and in excellent condition. Everything functions precisely making this an interesting user brace in a good general-purpose size.

Excellent Sheffield Style Beech Brace.
This is an early Sheffield brace with a beech frame and a Lignum head. The brace is in excellent condition. The frame has no cracks or damage at all and has developed a wonderful patina from age and some use over the decades. The lignum head is a deep, rich red. It has no checks or cracks. There is a bone or ivory plug at the end. The head is beautifully shaped. It spins freely and has no slop at all which is amazing. The brass chuck is steel lined for wear resistance which you don't see too often. The spring-loaded retaining button is very strong. I verified that it could hold several different sizes of center bits with no problem at all. It's a gorgeous tool and fully functional- these are a joy to use with traditional center bits, countersinks, etc.

James Bee Plated Sheffield Brace.
This is a usable plated beech brace made by James Bee. It has Henry Brown's patent medallion on the top of the Lignum head. The head is a deep rich red. The most obvious defect is a chunk missing from the head, but there's enough there to get a good firm, comfortable grip on. The chuck works perfectly and grips tapered bits tightly. The beech has some dings and general wear but it's totally usable. I'll include an assortment of four center bits with it in various sizes.

Mathieson Plated Brace.
This is a Mathieson no. 18 beech plated brace. The head looks like ebony to me- it's jet black and I can't discern any grain or color variation. Under the head the brass quill is a beautiful urn shape. It's an excellent user brace- I've had it in my shop for years and used it quite a bit. The push-button chuck is very tight and holds all sorts of tapered shanks perfectly. The plating has no damage and all original screws. The beech frame has the usual dings and scratches but no cracks or chips at all. The head spins easily with little slop. It's a great example to put to use.

Interesting Small Spoke Pointer.
This is a very good usable spoke pointer with a maximum width of cut of 1 3/4in. The blade is unique in my experience with these- it's an L shaped piece of steel, 1/8in thick and culminating in a bevel in one end. The bent end engages a set screw which regulates the depth of cut. It's an interesting mechanisim, and one I don't recall seeing before. This example is in very good working order. The thick blade has lots of life left in it. The tapered tang has minimal wear. It should be a good, useful tool to put a taper on the end of stock before using the hollow auger to cut a round tenon.

H. Chapin 7/8in Coming and Going Tongue and Groove Plane.
This plane cuts both halves of a T&G joint centered on 7/8in stock. It will work for 3/4 and 8/8 as well. The plane has seen considerable use and the body has a lot of wear. The throat on the tongue portion of the plane is wide open but for this sort of plane that matters very little. The blades are both in very good condition with no pitting- that matters a lot. It should be a good user, even if it it isn't the prettiest.

Double Bead Shave.
This is a coachmaker's double bead shave which cuts a small 1/4in bead on either side of the integral fence. The body is a bit rough which makes me suspect it's a patternmaker's copy of an original. Still, it's a well-used tool so it surely works well. the blades are pitted and could stand to be replaced or lapped heavily. It's a scarce pattern, however, and might make an interesting project.

This is a very good example of Stanley's tool handle. It has a hardwood handle and thick knurled two-jaw chuck. The handle contains nine original tools including a saw, chisel, gouge, reamer, countersink, awl, screwdriver and gimlets. It's in excellent working order. The two jaw chuck could also be used as a very comfortable file handle easily.

Exceptional Boxwood Hollow Tool Handle.
I imagine this tool handle is British though I have no proof as there is no maker's mark I can discern. The handle is boxwood- it has no checks at all which is very unusual for a chuck of boxwood of this size. The brass two jaw chuck works well and has an especially nice patina. It could easily be used as a file handle or to hold other tapered shanks. The tool handle contains six bits including two countersinks, a small chisel, center bit, reamer, and gimlet. It's a nice selection of small tools for fine work all enclosed in a nice tool handle.

Small 2in Beech Curved Spokeshave.
This is a dainty little shave with a very thin sole in front of the blade with a pronounced radius. I think it was originally intended to work inside curves. There is no maker's mark but it's likely British. The beech is in excellent shape wit no damage. The blade has a good amount of life left and has no pitting.

Stanley 66 Beader.
This is an excellent usable example of this useful beader. The body has almost perfect nickel. both the curved and straight fences are present as are six of the original blades- one fluting, two single beads, a double/triple bead, and two triple/quad bead blades. Additional blades can easily be made from scrap saw plate. I've used one of these quite a bit and I've always been pleased with it. It's slower than a molding plane, but it works difficult grain better due to the scraping action.

The driver comes with four bits- three flat screwdriver bits in various sizes, and one Phillips bit. Not al lof the bits are original to the screwdriver. bit all fit perfectly.

Oversizes British Turnscrew.
This is an 18in long turnscrew with the typical egg-shaped handle with an oval cross section. It's a great screwdriver to use on larger screws where you really need a lot of grip to apply torque where it's needed. The oval shaped handle give you a fantastic grip- much better than any plastic handled screwdriver. It was made by Swearby Tools in Sheffield, England and remains in excellent working order.

Excellent Vintage I. Sorby Warrington Hammer.
This is a long cross pein hammer with an approximately 8oz head. It has a nicely shaped, long, whippy, handle. The head is perfectly tight to the handle.

This is a scarce vintage example in great shape.

Greenlee No. 442 Spiral Ratchet Screwdriver.
This is an unusual spiral ratchet screwdriver made by Greenlee in Rockford. The first difference between this and the usual Millers Falls, North Brothers, Stanley, and other spiral ratchet drivers is the fact that the entire spiral mechanisim is enclosed in the inner steel tube. The outer tube slides over the inner in use, never exposing the delicate bits to danger. The second is the mechanism that locks the spiral shaft-most others use a knurled ring at the base of the spiral. This driver is locked in place with a pump-action. The ratchet selectio is at the base of the handle. The driver is in near mint condition with all original finish on the shaft and handle. It's an excellent working example of this interesting tool.

Unmarked One-Fold 18in Boxwood Rule.
This is a top quality boxwood rule unfinished and unmarked. There have been several such rules that have come to market over the past few years.

Early British 3/8in Center Bead by Allans.
This plane is clearly marked "Allans" on the toe. It has definite characteristics of a late 18th to very early 19th centuryBritish molding plane. The mark is listed in Goodman as known, though no dates of work nor any personal information on the maker are available. The plane is clean and excellent with a very good iron. The sole has some wear, as you'd expect from a plane this old with an un-boxed sole. The bead profile is dead straight, however, and the blad ehas no pitting so this one should be absolutely usable.

Crisp 3/4in Center Bead by Ohio.
This is an unusually large center bead by the Ohio Tool Co. The plane is in excellent condition with a crisp, clean body and perfect blade. It shows little use at all. The plane's most obvious features are the two holes in the handhold and the cut-aways on the escapement side. These aren't grips- these are holes to allow you to attach a plow plane's arms and fence to allow the plane to accurately cut beads any distance fromt he edge of a board. The holes are precision-cut and have an even patina with the rest of the plane so I believe these are original. The boxing is dead straight over the length of the plane. There is no warp or twist as is common with center beads. It's an excellent, usable plane.

Excellent 1/4in Center Bead made by Doscher.
The plane was made by or for the Martin Doscher Tool Co. in New York. It cuts a 1/4in bead. The plane's most obvious features are the two holes in the handhold and the cut-aways on the escapement side. These aren't grips- these are holes to allow you to attach a plow plane's arms and fence to allow the plane to accurately cut beads any distance from the edge of a board. The holes are precision-cut and have an even patina with the rest of the plane so I believe these are original. The boxing is dead straight over the length of the plane. the boxing has some slight variation but it falls within the size of the bead so I don't think it will matter at all. The blade is in excellent shape without any pitting at all. There is a small chip of boxing missing at the heel of the plane.

Small 3/8in Square Rabbet Plane by Naramore.
This plane was made by Henry Naramore, a Goshen, MA planemaker ca. 1865-72. The plane was made for Bassett & Co., a New Haven, CT hardware dealer who operated from a store front on Chapel St.. The plane retains much of its original Bassett label which is amazing considering it was sold right around the time of the Civil War. The plane remains in very good condition with a clean body and excellent blade. It's an interesting piece of history that could still be used today.

Early Moseley, London Sash Fillister.
This sash fillister was made by Moseley & Son in London ca. 1819-30 according to the mark in Goodman. The plane has been used carefully, but is in excellent working order still. The wedges lock the arms securely and adjust easily. The tops of the arms peak out just above the step in a neat, perfect semi-circle. This purely aesthetic feature is the mark of a top quality maker in my opinion. The working edge of the sole is boxed. The blade is in excellent condition. The wide steel depth stop is articulated with the brass thumbscrew on top of the. It's a fully usable, excellent working excellent working order.

Extra-Crisp Cabinet Pitch 1/2in Side Bead by Griffiths.
This is an excellent working example with virtually no use. It remains in crisp, clean condition with perfect boxing and nice sharp corners. The blade is bedded at 55 degrees- cabinet pitch. The blade was quickly lapped to reveal some scattered very light pitting that will lap out easily. It has three distinct owners' marks on the heel and toe, yet no hammer marks. It would seem that the previous owners spent more time marking the plane than actually using it.

The profile is almost square at 5/8in wide nad 1/2in deep, much higher than the usual flat sash ovolo. It has a nice even,honest patina overall. It will make an excellent worker, acting as a nice edge profile or table tops, drawer edges, etc.

Early Cannaidine Fillet and Ovolo Molding Plane.
This molding plane was made by Richard Cannadine in London ca. 1823-46 according to Goodman. The plane cuts an unusual fillet and 3/8in square ovolo. It's a nice small profile and not one I can remember seeing before. The other unusual feature is the blade's bedding angle which is just over 60 degrees. I can't recall seeing many professionally made planes with blades this steep. The blade is clean and quite sharp with no pitting at all ont he back. It's a good, usable early British plane with an interesting profile.

Exceptional 1/2in Square Ovolo Molding Plane.

The plane has an exceptionally steep middle pitch blade bedded at 60 degrees, ideal for tough hardwoods. The plane is in excellent condition all around, including the blade which has no pitting on the back and is quite sharp. It cuts a most attractive 1/2in square ovolo profile, a useful profile to use as an edge treatment on a variety of furniture and case pieces.

Hields, Nottingham 1 3/8in Skew Rabbet Molding Plane.
This plane has seen some use but has a lot of life in it still. The sole has some deep scratches and the working edge is rounded over a bit, but the mouth is still ultra-tight. The sole should be cleaned up a bit to remove the dings, and sharpen the corners a bit. Even after that the mouth will still be tight. The blade is in very good condition with most of its original length and no pitting on the back. With a minimum investment in labor this will be a great user skew rabbet to add to your working kit.

18th Century Panel Raiser by Mutter, London.
This plane was mad eby George Mutter who worked in London from 1766-99 according to Goodman. This is a true panel raiser with a blade that cuts a flat and bevel with a definite transition between the two- obvious when you look at a close-up of the blade. The plane has a beautiful patina overall and remains in usable condition. It shows sings of use but has no damage and was clearly well-kept and appreciated. The screws that lock the fence in place still hold tight. The blade, which has a mark I can't discern, still has a lot of life in it, despite its more than 210 years of age, and remains in good condition. The depth stop is a simple friction lock wedge dovetailed into the side of the plane. Over the years the stop has shrank a bit leaving it too loose to be useful. I've shimmed the sliding dovetail a bit to ensure that the stop has enough friction to stay put. I used my top-secret, completely reversible, shim stock of choice in cases like this- blue painter's tape. It sticks well and stays put, but can be removed easily enough if you want to revert it to original condition. All in all it's a remarkable shape for a plane of this age and it remains in usable condition.

Nice Triplet of British Molding Planes.
These three planes were found together and bear the same owners' marks, an "L. CLARK" and "H. Daniels". Two are Greenslades- these two have several previous owners' marks on them, also matching. The third is an earlier plane, unmarked, but well made. It has the Clark and Daniels marks mark on toe and heel. All three are small, simple profiles, very easy to use and in excellent working order. From left to right in the first photo: A Greenslade 5/8in flat ogee with a super right mouth and perfectly clean, full-length blade. Next is a slightly smaller 1/2in flt ovolo, also by Greenslade. This one is in nearly identical condition to the first with a similarly perfect blade and nice tight mouth. The final is an un marked 1/2in cove which looks to be from an earlier era than the Greenslades but in very good condition overall with a bit more wear, but a nice clean blade and tight mouth. All three are perfect user planes and in userful smaller profiles. I'm in favor of keeping matched sets of tools together for the sake of history, however, if these don't get any interest as a set I'll consider breaking them up next time around.

It's in excellent user condition overall- The body has a beautiful patina, the sole polished to a high sheen. The blade is bedded at cabinet pitch. It's perfectly clean, lapped, and quite sharp.

Early S.King Fillet and Ogee Molding Plane.
Thi is a gorgeous small profile and an early example made by Samuel King in Hull. According to Goodman King worked from 1776-1817 on his own and in various partnerships. The company continued to be run by his ancestors all the way to the early 20th century. This plane has the early "S.KING HULL" mark on the toe. It is in very good condition overall. It cuts a very curvy small fillet and ogee profile about 5/8in wide by 1/2in deep. The body has the usual light wear and dings you'd expect. The blade is ground perfectly and perfectly clean on the back with no pitting. It is bedded at York pitch. The only real flaw is that the tang of the blade has broken, leaving only about 1.5in projecting above the mortise. It's still usable and can be set with a small hammer easily enough without too much hassle. Overall it's a very pleasing profile in a very early plane.

Very Unusual and Early Moseley Dovetail Plane.
This plane bears the mark "Moseley & Co", a mark that Goodman dates to the earliest years of John Moseley's planemaking days, ca. 1805. The plane is a most unusual fixed dovetail plane, cutting the male part of a sliding dovetail joint approximately 1/8in deep and 1/4in wide. It has a wedged nicker ahead of the skewed main blade. The plane is most unusual in that it appears to be very quickly and roughly made, which is unlike any other Moseley plane I've found. It's also made from second quality stock with a few grains swirls and tight knots, again unlike Mosely. I would speculate that this plane was made by Moseley for use in the plane shop, perhaps to cut dovetailed boxing as detailed in Whelan's book in the chapter on planemaker's tools. It's just a guess- I'd like to hear other ideas if you have them.

Good Working Set of Hollows and Rounds.
This is a good working set of nine pairs of hollow and round molding planes. As found, the set consisted of sixteen matched planes made by Sandusky. There were two missing planes that I replaced and a few other issues that I will describe below. The original sixteen planes were all owned by a Mr. William Bourk. They were made by the Sandusky Tool Co and all bear the model number 92 on the toe. Most of the planes are in excellent condition. All of the blades are full-length, or close to it, and exceptionally clean with no pitting. A few of the planes had some problems and I have replaced these with matching planes in good working order. The planes are numbered with Sandusky's sizing system which doesn't match any other maker's so I will list the radius of the arc each pair cuts. I will describe each pair below in detail. There are also pictures of all of the planes below.

No. 9 1 1/4in. Both planes are in excellent condition and show little or no use.

No. 8 1 1/8in. Both planes are in excellent condition and show little or no use.

No. 7 1 in. Both planes are in excellent condition and show little or no use.

No. 6 7/8in. The hollow is excellent, save a small chip in the heel. The round has a crack in the non-escapement side. I have included a round that matches the hollow exactly and is in excellent condition.

No. 5 3/4in The hollow is excellent, the original round is missing so I substituted a matching round in excellent condition by the same maker and owner as the no. 6 round above.

No. 4 5/8in The hollow is excellent. The original round has a few chips out of the mouth so I have substitued a matching Chapin round in excellent condition.

No. 3 1/2in. The hollow is excellent. The original round has a small chip out of the thin area next tot the mouth on the non-escapement side. It probably works just fine but I have an identical Sandusky No.3 i n excellent condition so I'll include it.

No. 2 3/8in. The original hollow is in very good condition with some wear. The original round is missing so I included a matching Booth Bros. round in good, usable condition.

No.1 1/4in The hollow is excellent, the original round has a sliver missing from the sole in front of the mouth, a minor flaw but I will include a matching round in good, usable conditon.

Overall it's a decent working set of planes with a few minor issues but in good working order.

Excellent J. Kellogg Screw-Arm Moving Fillister .
Screw-arm fillisters like this one are very hard to find. They are even more rare to find in this condition. This example was made by J. Kellogg in Amherst, MA. Kellogg made high quality wooden planes throughout the mid-1800s. This plane has a maximum width of cut of 2in. It has a thumbscrew-operated depth stop with a locking screw. The depth stop adjusts easily and lock securely. The massive blade is in good shape with no pitting near the business end. The screw arms, nuts, and washers are all boxwood. The arms have a free small chips at the very end of the front arm, but otherwise they are perfectly, uncannily clean, even near the arms where they see the most use. The nuts and washers are in excellent condition and move the length of the screw arms easily. The rear nut does have a small knot and inclusion but it looks perfectly secure to me. The working corner of the sole is boxed and has minimal wear in the high-use area right in front of the mouth. The only appreciable wear is along the working edge of the fence which has some roughness. Otherwise it's in fantastic condition- definitely the best I've ever offered for sale and one of the best I've ever come across. It should make an excellent worker.

Exceptional Ohio Tool Co No. 05 Jack Plane.
This is one of the best examples of an Ohio bech plane I've come across. They aren't well-known but Ohio made some fine bench planes in the early 1900s, a time during which Stanley had few competitors in the bench plane market. Ohio made Bailey pattern planes without a few of the Stanley patented features- namely the two-part lateral adjuster and the patented frog mating surface. Ohio's planes stand apart from Stanley due to their irons. The iron was the selling point- see the advertisement in the last photo below for an example of how they marketed their irons. They equipped their planes with massive tapered irons nearly double the thickness of a stock Stanley iron. The added mass prevented chatter which is the bane of the thin Stanley blades. Otherwise their planes are nearly identical to a Stanley from the same era. This one is probably the nicest I've come across. It has nice clean sides and a clean sole. The bed has at least 9% japanning. The knob and tote are rosewood grained and retain almost all their original finish. The blade is full length. As shown in the photos, it has zero pitting on the back. The blade adjusters work well. It's a great example of this excellent user plane. I think it will be a great user.

On the plus side the japanning is about dead perfect. the rosewood tote and knob are likewise about perfect with almost all original finish. The blade adjusters are smooth and accurate. The blade is near full length and has no pitting at all on the back. It will tune up easily and be a top notch smooth plane.

This is Sargent's equivalent of the Stanley no. 4. It was mad ein the 1940s based on Heckel's type study. It's in excellent condition and has seen almost no use. It's clean with all original finish and a near perfect knob and tote. The blade is clean and long with no pitting at all. The adjusters all work perfectly. It has two flaws- the first is a small casting flaw in the right cheek which has left a small pit- a cosmetic issue only. The second is that while the blade appears to have it's original factory bevel, it's ground out of square by a couple of degrees. You could quickly regrind it square or there is enough room in the lateral adjuster to allow it to project evenly. Both are minor flaws, but should be pointed out. Overall it should be a fine worker.

Wartime Stanley 4 1/2 Heavy Smoother.
This is a WWII era Heavy Smoother with a 2 3/8in wide blade. As with some wartime planes, the casting on this one seems thicker which gives it a more substantial heft. This example has a hardwood knob and tote instead of rosewood, the supply of which was constrained during the war. It does have the frog adjusting screw which other planes from this ear lack. The sides and sole are good and clean. The bed is missing much of its original japanned finish. The original blade and cap iron were in terrible shape when found. I replaced with with new-old-stock replacements from my stash. Both the cap and iron are fresh mint right out of the package. Both date to around the 1950-60 timeframe and both are in factory new condition. The adjusters work well. It should be a fine worker.

SW Era Stanley No. 3 Small Smooth Plane.
This is a type 15, the last of the Sweetheart era planes made ca. 1931-32 according to the type study. The plane's iron has the Stanley notched logo with the patent no. 1,981,750 which corresponds to the Jul 18, 1933 patent for the kidney shaped hole in the lever cap. The plane is in very good working order. The sides and sole have an even, honest patina. Some japanning is missing from the bed, but I'd estimate some 80% remains. The knob and tote have some wear and the tote has a nearly invisible and perfectly tight crack in its midsection. The adjusters are smooth and accurate. The blade has almost all of its original length and no pitting, just some discoloration. It's a good, solid user from Stanley's lauded Sweetheart era.

Stanley No. 32 Transitional Jointer Plane.
This is Stanley's wood-bottom version of the no. 8, though two inches longer and with a little more mass. This plane has a 2 5/8in wide blade, same as the no. 8. The blade in this plane is surprisingly flat and clean with a lapped back and no pitting. To find a blade this wide in this condition is pretty rare. The plane's body has seen use and has some wear. The cast iron parts have at least 99% japanning. The knob and tote have no damage and the blade adjusters work fine. It's a solid large jointer at a good user price.

10in Brass Back Backsaw by A&E Parkes, Sheffield.
This is a high quality brass backsaw made by A&E Parkes & Co., Ltd in Sheffield. The brass back also has the "BIPEL" mark. The blade has no pitting. It is 2 1/2in deep and 10in long. It is almost perfectly straight with a slight wave over its length of no more than 1/32in. It's a minor point though as the saw cuts perfectly with ease even with the saw's currently dull teeth. The saw does not bind and it cuts straight. It needs tooth work so it's an ideal saw to retooth rip and use for dovetails. It has a nicely shaped beech handle with no damage, just some slight finish loss. It should be an exceptional user saw with a little work on the teeth.

Disston 10in Backsaw.
This is a ca. 1896-1917 10in backsaw with 2 3/8 inches of plate depth under the steel spine. The plate is not dead straight- there is a very slight bow at the toe- it's a couple of thousandths at most, but it's not perfect. The teeth aren't terribly sharp but the saw still cuts well- I can saw straight with it and the plate is smooth with no binding at all, even in softwood. The apple handle has an owner's mark, as well as some finish loss, but no chips or cracks. It needs a bit of sharpening, but afterwards you'll wind up with an excellent user saw.

It can accept other size plow irons for smaller jobs. It's an unusual plane, and completely usable. It's very well made, and clearly served a specific purpose.

Massive W. Edwards 28in Wooden Jointer Plane.
This plane has the W. Edwards mark shown in AWP-IV and given the "UR" mark. The plane is in excellent user condition all around.

There is a steel strike at the toe. The plane holds a 2 1/2in tapered double iron by Marsden. The blade has a small amount of pitting which could easily be overcome with a small back bevel or a bit of lapping. The area immediately in back of the bevel is clean so it should be an easy one to sharpen up. The sole has no twist and the plane sits flat on a test surface without rocking at all. It's a fine big jointer to put to work.

Big DR Barton, Rochester 26in Jointer Plane.
This is a big, heavy 26in jointer with a massive 2 5/8in wide double iron. The plane is in excellent user condition with only one flaw. The body is crisp and clean, the sole flat, and the mouth very tight. The thick, heavy blade has absolutely no pitting at all on the working area of the back. It's a truly huge blade, 316in thick at the business end. The flaw is a repaired crack in the tote. The plane was damaged during shipping and the tote cleanly cracked. It glued up nicely with only one small chip on the right hand side unaccounted for. The tote repair is strong and I cannot break the glue joint with normal force. It should hold up just fine in use. It's a top quality jointer at a discount due to the repair.
